Organized by ASTER S.cons.p.A., BioMethER coordinator

The workshop will explore the technical challenges connected to the upgrading of landfill and wastewater biogas to biomethane. After showing a selection of success cases on existing plants in Europe, the different regulatory approaches for the final biomethane use at European level will be compared. The aim of the workshop is to provide sound scientific background and practical examples of the final use of biomethane produced by these two types of biogas. The workshop is organised within the BioMethER LIFE+ project, which aims at developing the biogas/biomethane value chain in Emilia-Romagna.

Targeted audience: National and International regulators, multiutilities, natural gas grid managers, business associations
